INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. Iii the treatment of weeds, it is em phatically a case of "a stitch in time saves nine." They should be preven ted from seeding, -whenever possible, and when buying seeds for sowing, get them pure, so as to 'be certain that you are not sowing wild seeds. Weeds often grow more vigorously than useful plants, and, as a conse quence, they shade or crowd, or par tially choko the seedlings of the de sired crop. Weeds, naturally, make use of the same food as the cultivated plants among which they grow. Consequent ly, they deprive a crop of a large am ount of nourishment; and they rob the succeeding crop as well. On arable soil, weeds are trespassers that should be prosecuted with the utmost rigor of the law. Weeds having large leaf sur face draw from the soil and give off through the leaves a large amount of watei', and thereby rob the surround ing plants. Many botanists consider this waste of moisture the most ser ious injury done by the weeds.
Honest John. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
Honest John. George Carter, a very just man, carrying on business in a small vil lage, found it necessary one day to leave his establishment to the sole charge of John, his assistant, and, as usual, thinking it necessary to im press upon him the necessity of deal ing fairly with his customers, left him with these words: — "Well, John, if ever you are in doubt, quote a text to yourself, and you will find great help from it in your dealings." He had not been gone long before a lady walked into the shop and ask ed to see some shawls. John, pulling one out from under the counter, asked her how she liked it, stating that the price was half a crown. It was a very nice one, but being able to afford better, asked to see others. John, ready as ever, fetched an other out of the same box, and spread ing this out on the counter, stated the price to be five shillings. Still she was not satisfied, so, fetching an other one, also out of the same box, he asked her how she would like that at half a ...
IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. The value of permanent pasture is often prejudiced by the presence in it of a large number of weeds. Not only is the thick growth of the nour ishing grass hindered, but also nox ious weeds spoil the quality, so &lt;hat it is an essential part of good culti vation to keep the pasture free from such unsatisfactory constituents. The question—How can I keep my pas ture land free from weeds? is not an easy one to.deal with. There is, how ever, no doubt that by a judicious use of chemical fertilisers much can be done. But chemical fertilisers alone will not do everything. Their use must often be assisted by other means. Sorrel is caused by sourness of the soil through want of ventilation and drainage, and a deficiency of plant food, especially lime. The reason why fertilisers work in this beneficial way is that most 'Weeds flourish in soils poor in the 'mineral constituents, lime, phosphate and potash. These good plant foods do not agree with weeds, wh...
PREVENTING EVAPORATION [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
PRPVFNTlNrt PVAPHRATinW The frequent stirring of the surface portion of the soil, as for example by cultivation and harrowing, is an im portant question in lessening the am ount of evaporation and minimising the risks of drought by breaking t he capillary attraction. This operation is, of course, impracticable once a crop is sown, except in the case of the mangold or turnip or similar crops, when the drills are left sufficiently wide apart to allow of after-cultivation. With an ordinary crop, however, the soil has to remain undisturbed during the whole of the time the ground is occupied by such crops, so that much more will depend upon the thorough ness of the tilth previous to sowing the crop. The principle object to be aimed at in the preparation of the land for such crops is to keep the surface cobbly while the underneath is com pact. This can be obtained by plough ing deeply, and by thoroughly culti vating as early in the season as pos sible, so that the surface need only be cul...
CONDITION OF SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
CONDITION OF SOIL. If the land is wet and cold when seed is sown, even though the germi nation is good, the young plants re ceive such a severe check that they never wholly recover The land In tended for spring and summer crops should be carefully prepared some time -before Lhe period for sowing. Then just previous to seeding, the surface should be cultivated, so as to give a fulness to the surface soil and still have the ground firm under neath. The principal advantage of ihis method is that the moisture col lected from rains is retained in lhe lower layers of the furrow, and is there -for the use of the crop Where as, if ploughed up or deeply cultiva ted in the spring, there is always the risk that the drying winds of the spring will rob the soil of too much moisture, leaving insufficient for the use of the crop. In districts with a heavy rainfall tluil. is evenly distributed over the whole of the season this precaution is not so important, but in other dis tricts not so fortunate...
SCIENTIFIC FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
SCIENTIFIC FARMING. Farming is no longer without at traction for the enterprising young man. It is calling to its service the engineer and the scientist. A farm conducted on modern lines can em brace as many of the newest mechani cal developments at any other form of industry. Many farmers have now their own little laboratory, for exam ination of the soil, and suitable fertilisers, an electric plant for light ing the house and supplying power to the workshops, petrol-driven milking machines, ploughs and cultivators,and portable engines of the internal com bustion type, for thrashing and barn work. Science having got this grip on agriculture, farm life cannot fail to reclaim many who abandoned it originally on the plea of monotony.
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
CULTIVATION OF CARROTS The carrot, which is not grown so extensively as it might be with advan tage, resembles in composition the turnip and mangold, but it is much more concentrated than the former, as it contains l'rom 14 to 20 per cent, of dry nutritive matter against about 10 in the turnip. It flourishes best in deep loamy noils, not too wet, or the carrots are liable to rot, and not very dry, or the growth or the root is cramped. The soil must be deeply cultivated to per mit the long-penetrating root full power of development. The ground should be well manured. Half-rotted stable manure, applied in the autumn at the rate of twenty loads to the acre, is a good prepara tion. The requirements of the carrot for a liberal supply of plant food are so great that, in addition to the dung, it can utilise with advantage a supple mentary dressing of readily soluble chemical fertilisers. 'The application of 3cwt. superphosphate, 2G per cent, soluble, and M>o\vt. of sulphate of pot ash, ...
CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Terang Express — 6 January 1914
CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. One ot' the strongest objections to country life by those who live in cities is Lhat the conveniences of the farm home are few, and that the work of the housewife is made a. much greater hardship than it. is in the cities. This is, as a rule, the case. The ordinary farm home has not t'-e labor-lighten ins improvements of the city home. There is 110 plumbings in the house by which the luxury of the bathroom can be had, 110 running water, 110 sew age system, heating is done by stoves instead of furnaces, and the whole plan of the house is to increase the steps of the good housewife rather than to lessen them. Now, this is not as it should be. The farmer and liis wife should have as many of the luxuries of life as may be possible, and it is possible to ar range the house of the farm so tliat many of tiie necessities of the city house may be had. Recently equipped farm homes are usually better equip ped than are those of several years ago. This is by reason t...
